Things must be rough for J.R Smith at the moment.
Just after suffering a heartbreaking loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, the shooting guard's Twitter account was reportedly 'hacked' according to Smith.
The hacker posted a simple statement: "Cavs in 7." only a few minutes after Game 3, which Smith promply deleted after realizing what had been posted.
Smith later came out and addressed the tweet, explaining that he was hacked and he is smarter than that to tweet something immediately after the game. That doesn't mean he doesn't agree with what the hacker was saying though.
"I got out of the shower and my phone was buzzing. I did not tweet that, I'm smarter than that."
"I do believe," Smith said. "But I didn't tweet that. I would be much smarter than that to tweet that at literally 12:04, right after the game."
J.R. has been having a very disappointing NBA Finals campaign, averaging 6.3 points per game on 37% shooting from the field.
Make no mistake though. If the Cavaliers do somehow manage to make NBA history like they did last year and come back from this 3-0 deficit, this supposed 'hacker' can at least take some of the credit.
